Additional Information: Privacy and security are critical for realizing big data's promise to advance society. If data is used without regard to privacy of individuals or protection of the data, then individuals may be hurt. If data's authenticity is not guaranteed, or if data is not permitted to be used at all due to privacy and security concerns, then the data's value is not realized. As the information that is collected about us grows in quantity, scientific and commercial value, and sensitivity, addressing these challenges is crucial to accessing the benefits of big data while ensuring that privacy and associated basic rights -free speech and association, for example- are respected. Security and privacy play a key role in areas such as health, energy, and smart cities. They are also repeatedly identified as a grand challenge in and of themselves. Throughout, a goal of the workshop is to highlight challenges arising in big data applications that are not addressed by current security and privacy mechanisms.
Target Audience: Researchers,  Undergraduate Students,  Graduate Students
